It’s important to take Sharon to Kismet when she wants to go to Kismet.

Hi Folks-

So Sharon and I are beginning a three day weekend tonight, both taking Friday, Saturday and Sunday off from the store. We have no lofty ambitions, either for fun or education, and are probably going to stay at home, play some games, drink some wine and eat well.

As for the eating well, I have many thoughts but foremost among them is that I have a duty to take Sharon to Kismet tonight for, we think, the best dinner available in Montpelier. She feels that we have made plans to go there over the past few months and the plans have somehow not come to fruition. Her tone would indicate that these failed date nights fall on me. My bad. She is no doubt correct, and we are definitely going tonight. We’re going to get there at 5:30 – early enough that it will be fairly quiet and also early enough that we can have a fantastic dinner and still be home in time to go to bed early. Because we are tired and we want to freshen up for the next three days of fun and frivolity.

The good news on the store front is that we have a full complement of fish to meet your desires while we are away. We still have frozen crawfish set aside for those of you wanting to make crawfish etouffee, and we have fresh East Coast Halibut coming in. I wish I could tell you that it’s inexpensive but I can’t. It’s priced as high as ever but it’s the best fish to grill or broil ever, with it’s medium taste and its unique texture. I love halibut and if you don’t buy it I’ll cook it for me and Sharon next Monday when we’ll need an end of the vacation pick me up. Aside from the standards we will also be having Pemaquid oysters, and PEI Mussels.

Anyway, we’ll see you again on Monday after our footloose three days.

Fish arriving tomorrow:

  • Alaskan Cod, flash frozen at sea
  • Dayboat yellow tail sole
  • East Coast Halibut filets
  • Sustainable Shetland Salmon
  • Dayboat Haddock
  • Swordfish
  • Icelandic Arctic Char
  • 16/20 Wild Gulf Shrimp
  • 10/20 Dry Scallops
  • Pemaquid Oysters
  • PEI Mussels

See you at the Store!
